About Big Rock:

This 6 meter (20 feet) high boulder was transported by a glacier from the Jasper area. It is the biggest of 4 boulders from the same geological event in the Calgary area. There are problems for everyone all the way up to V11. Bring a crash pad and a spotter since some of the problems are prety high, and there is alot of broken glass on the ground. Be aware that there are naitive drawings on the rock, don't touch them, or climb over them (although they are prety hard to see)
